Limestone Pavements in Great Britain and the Role of Soil Cover in Their Evolution
Članek obravnava povezavo med korozivno močjo prsti in skalnimi oblikami v apnencu. V ta namen so vzorcem iz različnih škrapljiπč, drugih oblik kraškega površja in vrtač v Severni Angliji, določili pH in delež karbonatov. Rezultati meritev so potrdili, da so oblike pod kislo prstjo globlje in da prisotnost apnenca močno zvišuje pH prsti.
The goal of the research was to verify the connection between the solutional power of soil and the shape of rocky features in limestone. Soil samples from runnels, grikes, foot of pavements, top of limestone, grass patches and dolines were collected on limestone pavement areas of North England and examined for the pH and carbonate content. The results of the measurements proved that the soils with lower pH are related to deeper solution features and that proximity to limestone causes a higher soil-pH.
